Sports: Here's every pick from the first round of the NFL Draft and how it compares to expert predictions

No Rating

All 32 picks of the NFL Draft.
With the first pick of this year's NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns selected Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett.
The move was not much of a surprise as eight of the nine NFL draft experts we surveyed before the draft were projecting Garrett to be the first pick.
The big surprise came at No. 2 where the Chicago Bears traded up to select North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
Below, we'll track each pick of the NFL draft and compare those selections to where some of the top draft experts predicted the player to be picked.
